Best 8mm Film Transfer in Charleston

Breaking News: We are a company continually researching and developing new technologies to get more quality from your film. We are very proud to offer our brand new Advanced Grain Elimination Technology. It removes 95% of grain and video noise from film to give you a clean, sharp video from your old movies. It is an amazing technology that has been in development for years.

8mm film does degrade over time and most 8mm film today is over 60 years old. It only has 5-10 years left. This is why it is extremely important that you transfer your 8mm film to DVD, BluRay or digital video files while you still can. And, like anything, there is a wide difference in quality from a wide range of companies.

We are the premiere film scanning company in the USA scanning all type of film (8mm, super 8, 16mm and 35mm) up to 4K resolution. Film is old (50-60 years old on average) and it shrinks over time. Today if you run your film on a projector or low-end film transfer machine you will damage the film. Make sure your film is being scanned on a professional film scanner (> $100,000) that doesn't use the sprocket holes to move the film through. If NASA trusts us to scan their moon footage and SpaceX trusts us to scan their first launch to the international space station you can trust us to scan your amateur or professional film.

You won't find any company in offering these high quality services. No worries. Send it to us and you'll have it back in less than 2 weeks.

The most important part in any film transfer is the initial scan of the 8mm film. If the initial film scan was done with a projector and camcorder or frame by frame machine, the image is not going to truly represent the film. In some cases it might only get 40% to 60% of the image quality. In fact if you had your 8mm film converted to VHS years ago and can still watch your film on a projector you need to compare the two side by side. You'll see that the VHS is a very poor copy of the 8mm film. It will only have about 40-50% of the quality of the 8mm film. So, If you really want to archive your 8mm film to DVD or other digital video formats, our professional 8mm film transfer machines will certainly meet your needs. We can scan 8mm film up to 2K (1556) lines of resolution. You wont find any other company offering a 2K scan of your 8mm film. So, if you want the best, look no further.

Time is critical. We can still scan 8mm film from the 1950's to 1970's to high quality digital formats. In some cases, we can still scan 8mm film from the 1930's and 1940's as well. The time has come to preserve your family history. There is no better time. This is an excellent opportunity to pass your precious memories to your family's newest generation.

Super 8 Film Transfer

Super 8 film was a follow-on to 8mm film that came out in the mid 1960s. It is still has a width of 8mm but the frame is a little wider and it can have a magnetic sound strip. We transfer Super 8 film to DVD and other digital video formats just like we do for 8mm film. We can transfer Super 8 film up to 2K (1556) lines of resolution as well.

16mm Film Transfer

16mm film was a professional format that has been around since 1923 as a cheaper alternative to 35mm motion picture film. 16mm film can have various audio formats on the film including magnetic and stereo optical. We do have some customers with family footage on 16mm film but most of our 16mm customers are government agencies and independent movie makers. Some will transfer their 16mm film to DVD, but most will get BluRay or HD digital video files. We can transfer 16mm film up to 2K (1556) lines of resolution.

35mm Film Transfer

35mm film is a strictly professional format used for Hollywood films and commercials. Most 35mm film will have multiple audio formats like Stereo optical in addition to SDDS and Dolby Digital formats. We can transfer 35mm film to DVD, BluRay, digital video and DPX.

Digitally transferring your 8mm, Super 8 16mm or 35mm film to DVD will be one of the most important things you do — for yourself, your family, your kids ... and your kids' kids! This can be an expensive undertaking. But remember, we're talking about preserving priceless memories that cannot be replaced.
